The title of this book is "Supporting Windows 8" when in fact over 1/3 of the book is nothing more than going over the install of the operating system. The entire first chapter is just the windows 8 interface. While this might be useful if you are starting from scratch and have no idea how to install, or navigate the operating system, "supporting" implies that these have already been done. There is also a staggering lack of material for the price being asked for the book. Most of the pages aren't even printed straight, and are on an angle as well. I would definitely suggest looking elsewhere.

Great reference for tech support, the added 8.1 information was of help if you are supporting version 8.1 or looking into supporting this version..

So far so good!
